We decided to use to compost this year to mulch our planter beds and trees. We were very satisfied with the quality of the compost, and will likely make the trip again in the fall. The only downside is the facility location is 10 miles farther than our local garden store. However, based on the savings and the quality, I think it's worth the trip.
Finally, to note, the compost and mulch sales was not advertised. Also, relevant websites did not provide enough details and it took several phone calls to the county municipal waste office, a civic garden club, and the local waste management company to get the information. However, once I did find the right contact, the service has been excellent.
